12Amazon EC2 Uptime

Amazon EC2 Uptime

About a month ago I made the switch to Amazon EC2 for hosting my websites (some of them at least). I’m pleased to be able to say that the uptime has been considerably better than both a shared hosting and a VPS hosting account I have with two different hosting providers.

With my shared hosting account I was seeing uptime of around 96%, my VPS slightly higher with 98%. My Amazon EC2 instance however has seen 100% uptime since it was deployed over a month ago. That’s brilliant!

On top of that I’m seeing reports of improved page loading times which means being on Amazon EC2 my sites are running that little bit faster.
